Nicki Minaj's fairy tale fashion.

In Nicki Minaj's new music video for 'Moment 4 Life,' the Cinderella story gets a modern day, hip-hop twist. And just in time for Valentine's Day, female rapper dreams do come true.

Those familiar with the original fairy tale will recognize some key changes in the highly stylized story line in Minaj's version...

* Cinderella's footwear of choice is no longer glass slippers. It's blinged out Louboutin stilettos.
* Cinderella isn't into rags for her work around the palace any more. It's all flashy gold studded numbers now that reveal breast, breast and more breast.
* The Prince (Drake, swoon)'s wardrobe has given up royal robes in Nicki's fantasy fairy tale land. He dons a drab black pant and shirt for most of the video. But he still looks good. And so we're willing to suspend our disbelief.
